After several years absence, Frank El soup food has returned with its southern style buffet for $8. Yesterday, the buffet included fried pork chops, baked chicken, and some great chicken and dumplings, with great sides of cornbread dressing, collards, sweet potatoes, black eyed peas, plantains, peas and rice, mac n cheese and so on. Had a slice of cake, too, pineapple cake with orange frosting--- and it was great, and i'm not a big cake fan.
Some of the best (only?) home style cooking places around USF, and the oblivious students will never know.
It is on Fletcher in the same strip as Chopstix, Lee's food store, etc.
